Birthday boy Hugh Tinney will close out the Limerick music series

It will be celebrations all around as one of Ireland’s greatest pianists brings this year’s Castleconnell Autumn Series of classical music to a close on November 27.

Hugh Tinney will perform in the beautiful surroundings of All Saints Church as part of his 60th Birthday Tour of Ireland.

His concert will close this year’s Music Series, which has already seen Gavan Ring and Santa Ignace, Victoria Massey and Pádhraic Ó Cuinneagáin and the Amatis Piano Trio thrill audiences with their wide-ranging repertoires in the last three months.

Hugh brings together core piano composers - Beethoven, Chopin and Schubert - and two outstanding present-day composers, Belfast-born Ian Wilson and the celebrated British composer Thomas Adès for the programme, a balance of “old and new”.
